You Know You’re In Australia

Round Australia Road Trip #28

You know you’re in Australia when

kangaroos are having breakfast on the lawn,


there’s a sunset picnic on the beach,


this is the only phone that works,


beer goes with fishing,


you’re in the middle of nowhere and a long way from anywhere,


there’s a Southern Cross windmill in the backyard,


this is a river,


you overtake yet another road train,


you need to look out – crocs are about,


the beach goes forever


and so does the highway,


Β one of these might be crossing the road,


you’ve got the whole campground to yourself,


your morning coffee comes with a beautiful view,


it takes a long time to go not very far,


there’s a galah in the gum tree,


you need to use the Aussie salute,



the sunsets are incredible.

    • At least you know all the important things, like where not to go swimming and what you should look at while drinking coffee! Our beaches and sunsets are amazing. Why don’t you come and see for yourself? You’d be very welcome.


  1. How did I miss this luscious post? I’m going to reblog it. I have your Brisbane set to come out tomorrow. If you don’t mind, I’m going to fill some of my three weeks with Carol and Leanne posts. Everyone will get to see some things I may have to miss in Australia! πŸ™‚ But they will get the best part – my friends! πŸ™‚ Three more days. Wahoo! πŸ™‚

  3. Hi! Came here from Marsha’s site and I’m glad I did. This was fun and beautiful! Thanks to you both!
    We have beer with fishing, here, too (USA) but I don’t really do either one, much. Although once I grabbed what I thought was a can of plain carbonated water from a cooler and drank the whole thing before someone asked me why, since I don’t really like beer much. Must’ve been weak stuff! πŸ˜€

    • Hello and welcome! I’m not fussed on beer either. But when we were in Salzburg and did the Steigl Brewery tour, we received three vouchers each for beers to have in the beer garden. My husband thought he was on a winner…six beers for him. But I tried their special fruity beers and loved them, so he missed out!
